Left to itself, water goes flat quickly, as the dissolved gases escape. If you’re growing in a hydroponic setup all of the oxygen will escape from your nutrient reservoir in only a couple of days. After that you can actually drown your plants by depriving them of life-giving oxygen!
The solution? Aerating your nutrient solution with an air pump! The Dura 2 pump small and efficient, delivering 84 gallons of air per hour through two outlets—you can keep two containers of nutrient aerated at once! Pro-tip:
Grab a 6 inch air stone
or 12 inch air stone
aeration stone to complete your setup.
Air pump used with air stone to pump extra air into the nutrient solution. Eco Air 2 is a dual line pump. 84 GPH, 3.5 W, 120 V.
